Director Statement

"Für eine Nacht” tells the story of a lesbian couple who face the consequences of a betrayal. What led me to write this story was curiosity about the motivations that lead a person like Caterina, with a strong moral sense and an authentic personality, to put aside her beliefs and forgive her partner. The queer theme emerged from the first draft. My attempt was to explore new stories and interactions, even if the motivations that move them are the same: love, jealousy, friendship.

Despite the dramatic genre, as with other shorts I've made previously, there is no shortage of comedy moments.

The short was one of the first screenplays I wrote and after several updates it arrived in the hands of Giulio Baraldi, producer of Kess Film in Berlin, who decided to produce it.

The shooting was done in February 2020, in the middle of the Berlin winter, in 4 nights, with great effort and dedication from the cast and crew. Among the nationalities that made the short, in addition to a large part Italian, there are Croatia, Ireland, China, Indonesia, USA, India... The film is in German and interpreted by two non-native protagonists, Giovanna Nodari (Italian ) and Lea Mornar (Croatian). A demanding challenge, first of all for me, given that it is the first film I direct in German, but which is part of the process of integration that I began when I moved to Berlin in 2017.
